CompactMsg v. 0.03 11-Feb-2000 (4k) 26/32bit neutral

CompactMsg is a command line utility which will tokenize a messages file using the tokens used by Acorn's !Help application. Once tokenized the messages file can be used as normal, the !Help application automatically expands the strings; this makes the message file much shorter as strings such as 'Click SELECT to ' and 'This option is greyed out because ' are reduced to two character tokens - /S and /G for the two examples.
